  • 1500 enough?? WANT to buy!!!

    hi guys i live in australia and i own a Nissan R34 Skyline.

    these computer things are amazing and i relali would like one.

    i was wondering.....i have $1500 AUD....is this enough to buy what i need?

    i saw the setup that "afterdigital" had and it blew my mind...and want something very similar.

    my question is will WIfi and internet work over here in australia? and how well will it work?

    Err... Posting like this will lead to flames :wink:

    Since you're not planning to DIY, maybe you can buy a complete set from www.mp3car.com instead? Then you just needs to pay for the installation in your car and you're good to go.

          dragonkneel thanks i had a long look through that but didnt find much about australia's capabilities of running WIFI in car computers. is it possible that anyone could go a bit more in depth into how well these things work with WIFI in melbourne Metro or CBD areas

                      Not so much as you might think.. here in Orlando I see one every few months...

                      sometimes in Downtown some big shot has to show off his Lambo or BMW 650i but other than that.. I havent seen a lot of nice cars around here

                      I did see an R32 few years ago .. right hand drive and all .. pretty cool

                            I assume since your in NY that you havent spent 1000$ USD, he doesnt want to spend more than 1500$ AUD, I have no idea what the conversion is ther thouhg

                              There is no way to build a good, small, new system (with everything) for under $1500 AUD. its around the right mark though. People who claim they have are using cheap (read crap)/slow/old (recycled) components.

                              Motherboard (with embedded CPU)
                              PCMCIA slot adapter (for wireless internet)
                              7" touch screen (in dash)
                              DVD ROM
                              GPS
                              Bluetooth
                              Case
                              DC-DC PSU
                              Wiring
                              HDD
                              RAM
                              Wireless card or USB
                              Wireless antenna
                              + shipping all the way over here...

                              = LOTS

                              AUD = USD / 0.76 (approx)
                              1500 AUD = ~$1153 USD
